Abstract:

THE DEVELOPMENT OF HYPERSONIC AEROSPACE VEHICLES REQUIRES DETAILED KNOWLEDGE OF THE AEROTHERMODYNAMIC (ATD) ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THE VEHICLE WILL BE OPERATED. EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF ATD PARAMETERS AT GREATER THAN 6KM/S IS PRESENTLY NOT FEASIBLE. THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP THE TECHNOLOGY BASE AND DEMONSTRATE AN ELECTROMAGNETIC GUN SYSTEM CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING GREATER THAN 6KM/S LAUNCH VELOCITY. THE OBJECT IS TO DEVELOP A DISTRIBUTED, ENERGY-STORAGE CONCEPT FOR POWERING RAILGUNS TOPUSH THE SYSTEM ENERGY CONVERSION EFFICIENCY TO MORE THAN 80 PERCENT. THIS HIGH EFFICIENCY AT HYPERVELOCITY WILL MAKE ATD TESTING AT GREATER THAN 6KM/S FEASIBLE.
